Q. I have a Saturday evening wedding mid November in New York (where I reside), I just purchased a black tea length BCBG spaghetti strap dress with handkerchief bottom. Is it ok to wear black silk, strappy, backless sandals, and of course bare legged? I don’t want to look too summery, though I really can’t imagine wearing a closed shoe with an evening dress. Again, because it is not a gown, some leg and my feet will be exposed. Help.
A. I’m surprised a girl from the Big Apple hasn’t realized that we New Yorkers brave the cold temps with chattering teeth and numb toes to avoid wearing hose and get the most wear out of our party appropriate strappy heels. Step lively and just wear a longer coat and warm gloves.
